Teach me about Bail
There is planet’s worth of things in life that no one ever really tells us about. Taxes, bills, debt, credit, how to put money in a parking meter, and what to do when you get arrested, are just some of the things we have to learn about on our own. We typically learn about these things from search engines, like Google, or through trial and error. However, somethings we shouldn’t leave up to trial and error. One of those things is getting arrested.
If you rely on the internet to tell you what to do when you get arrested, you’ll be stuck looking at poorly drawn cartoons of a person standing behind bars screaming help. Blog sites will tell you that jail isn’t like it is as seen on TV, but you already figured that much out. Sure that may be funny to someone who isn’t in jail, but you are in jail. Plus you probably won’t have your phone on you to make a call.
Just winging it, and figuring out the whole jail deal on your own isn’t a good option. We all know that people take advantage of others, and ignorance isn’t bliss. Protecting yourself from the bad guys in world is always a smart option. Being prepared, and knowledgeable about a situation will only benefit you.
Let Ventura Bail Bonds be your teacher. Once you call us we get the ball rolling, and in time to get back to your life. The agent will then ask you for information about yourself.
It’s best to be prepared for these questions:
- What is your bail amount?
- Any priors?
- Is there someone willing to co-sign for you? If yes, what is their number?
After answering these questions, our agent will be able to get you in our system. Then the agent will be able to fill out the paperwork for posting the bond. California law states that bail bonds cost 10% of the bail. This means that if bail is set at $10,000, we will charge you $1,000 to bail you out.
We help you fill out the paperwork over the phone with you. Afterwards we will meetup to collect signatures. After the paperwork is complete and has your signature on it, we will post the bail. Then it’s only a matter of time before the jail releases you. You’ll be able to brag to your friends about how smart you are with all this new found knowledge.
